webpagetest.org speeds do not match other testing sites

RE: webpagetest.org speeds do not match other testing sites
For comparison to your analytics you may be best off looking at repeat view numbers, assuming some percentage of your population is coming in with a pre-warmed cache and may be bouncing from page to page in the same session.

"Native" is certainly best-case as far as connectivity goes but it is worst case as far as browser cache, particularly if you JS resources are long-lived and your users tend to visit frequently.

When looking at Analytics, make sure to look at percentiles/histograms. Averages just hide way too much information. I usually use SOASTA's mPulse for RUM data because of the visibility into the percentiles, user timing metrics and a bunch of other stuff (free for some levels of usage).
